Dream Curling is a Dream Event in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games; it is the Dream Event Version of the regular Curling, and while Curling's main rules and controls are retained, the event also acts similar to bowling, making it a bowling/curling crossover. It takes place on Sherbet Land from Mario Kart 64.
Dream Curling also appears in the DS version referred as Curling Bowling but it does not take place on Sherbet Land. There are no item boxes in this game or a Goomba which gives extra points if hit, although Goombas do make an appearance in the event, as the pins. They are replaced by panels which have Mega Mushrooms and Mini Mushrooms which change the size of the stone and makes the stone easier or harder to curl, and gates which double or triple the score for that turn. If a character receives maximum points in a frame, (all gates + Goombas, called a Super Strike) in addition to that frame, the points are doubled on his or her score in the next frame. By receiving three super strikes in a row, the turkey emblem is awarded.
Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
Dream Curling, now under the name Hole-in-One Curling appears in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games as one of the 8 Dream Events in the game. This time around the event takes place in Green Hill Zone and is more of a combination of golf and curling. In teams of 2, one player rides on a large curling stone all the way to the house (the blue and red circle) in the least amount of shots. The number of shots taken act as the points each team earns. At the end of the amount of holes chosen, the team with the fewest points wins.
